IE Control by Group Policy
article #45, updated 3311 days ago

To control Internet Explorer settings by group policy, do the following in the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC), after beginning the edit of a policy object:

Open User Configuration, Windows Settings; right-click on Internet Explorer Maintenance, and choose Preference Mode, Advanced. Now on the right pane you will see “Corporate Settings” and “Internet Settings”, and IE can be controlled quite nicely from there. This is a very good way to help control disk space usage on a terminal server, for instance.

The GP item is under Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, Windows Components, Security Center.

Apparently, updates to both server and client PCs have to be quite current.
